Some parents with Polycystic Kidney Disease (hereinafter called PKD) worry whether they can have a healthy baby after they take kidney transplant. As to this confusion, there are some key points which PKD patients need to consider.
Fertile women’s renal function keep normal within 1.5-2 years after taking
kidney transplant, and she has no Hypertension or her Hypertension get
controlled. Proteinuria presents negative or small amount. There is no acute
injection reaction in human body and her renal pelvis and renal calices does not
present extension. On the above conditions, PKD patients can get pregnant.
However, theses mothers need to take anti-rejective medicines which can suppress
newborn’s immunity in their rest life. Therefore, infants is not advisable to
take breast breeding. PKD women need to take into account whether their specific
conditions suit to be pregnant. Taking careful observation after pregnancy is
necessary to decide whether pregnancy is suitable to continue, and the pregnancy
needs to terminate in case of the happening of bad situations.
Generally, nephritic patients can give birth to a healthy baby smoothly and
their original kidney disease will not aggravate due to baby birth, If she has
no Hypertension, renal function damage or massive Proteinuria. In sum, it is
recommended to have a baby as soon as possible once PKD patients build a family,
because renal function can decrease gradually with age. In that case, they may
miss the optimum opportunity to be pregnant.
